about us

Hergest & Cavell Funeral Directors

We are a  family owned and run business serving the local communities in and around Gravesend and Dartford. While we are a relatively new business, we are not inexperienced by any means. We started our funeral business in order to provide a bespoke and personal service to families following a bereavement. We pride ourselves that everything we do has you your family in mind.

Our funeral homes are modern, warm and welcoming and we are personally available for you 24 hours a day, everyday. 

Should we be privileged to be entrusted with the care of your loved one, we promise that it will always be a one of us that speaks and meets with you regardless of day or time.

We will not disappoint you. We truly believe that your choice of funeral director is an important one, and we encourage families to compare more than just price.

We are happy to give advise, support and guidance to any family regardless of their final decision.

Our overall aim is to provide quality funerals at affordable prices, for everyone.

'Quality without Compromise'


our ethos

We offer our sincerest condolences

Losing someone can come as a shock and the first few days can be both busy and confusing. We understand, and are here to give you the advice you need, listening to you every step of the way so that the choices you make are the right ones for your family.

Helping you make the informed choices

We believe in being open about everything we do. We will give you honest answers to your questions with clear explanations so that you are informed and remain in complete control. The advise we give you will be sensitive and specific to your individual needs

We will not disappoint you

While we are a relatively new business, our 50 years combined experience has taught us what really matters. We promise to focus on you and not corporate ideals. As an independent business we can truly make a difference when it matters most. We are not a large organisation, or independent multiple, we are normal people, just like you
